Payroll and Bookkeeping for new businesses

When you are running a business, you might find there is just never enough time in the day. You may also find that it can be difficult to build a team whose knowledge and expertise cover all aspects of your business needs. Accounting can be an area where, unless specifically trained, very few have the knowledge to manage company finances to a high standard.

Therefore, outsourcing your accounting needs can be valuable for any company, big or small. Accounting services are essential for any business to manage the finances of the company and provide a clear picture of the financial health of the company.


Outsourcing your Payroll and Bookkeeping for new Businesses

This article will explore the reasons why outsourcing your accounting, and in particular, your bookkeeping and payroll services, to a professional accountancy firm, can be beneficial for your business.


What can a professional accountancy firm do for your company?


• Your accountant will make the calculations and deduction of PAYE, PRSI, USC for your employees as well as Class S PRSI for Directors where applicable.
• As a part of this process, they can calculate the taxable value of benefits in kind and other non-cash benefits provided by them by their employees.
• Employee registration is made easier as your accountant will set up and register your employees on the payroll system and with Revenue to ensure accurate legislative payments.
• They will upload payroll to comply with the PAYE modernization systems and will send payslips to all employees by means of a password-protected file ensuring privacy and security for the employee and the company.

Accounting services

Your accountant can provide the following functions to allow you to concentrate on running your own business

• Accounts payable
• Accounts receivable
• Reconciliations of general ledger

• An accountancy firm can provide business advisory and consult with you on a wide range of areas including start-up advice, loan and grant applications or raising private equity.
• An accountancy firm has experts in many areas, from payroll to bookkeeping, taxation to due diligence, and more. This means that you will be able to get advice on any issue that may arise without the need to hire an accounting department within your own company.
